Staaan, I submitted a poem with a photo into the writing section three days ago and it still has not been approved. Is there a reason for this or is it another bug? Do I need to resubmit or what?

Staaan? Have you left the building? Drowning in work? ;-)

Thank you Staaan. We desperately need an option to delete or edit our entries though. One entry in the current photoshop contest needs deleting because the person reposted the source entry instead of the manipulated version of it.

Also, instead of getting this message: "someone replied to your comment", could you make it "someone commented your entry" or something similar please?

And also insist for the authors to give a title to their chops and photos, and provide their sources?

Hi Staaan, I see no button to start a new thread or story anymore. Will there be a new one in future or can't we start any threads?

How do we vote for contests? Do we hand our awards for the works we like best? I see no voting button, just an award button.

Hello Skyangel,

At this moment it's only the 'likes' that are taken into consideration.
I am changing this to a 1-100 voting system.

The awards are things that can be handed out separately! They don't count for the contest result but are just a way of appreciation. I will send you a link with a more detailed explanation

Thank you. I appreciate all your hard work behind the scenes. A 1-100 voting system sounds like a great idea because we can like many things but we generally like some more than others and would obviously rate them higher for various reasons.

Is there a place where we can watch again the previous photography and photoshop contests? How to find it?

Staaan, you best of the bests, could you indicate clearly the deadlines for posting in the contests and the dates for voting please? There is a countdown clock, but does it indicate the end of posting or the end of voting?

If you scroll to your entry, you will see 2 new little icons. One next to the title and one next to the description. You can use these to...

I tried them but they are still not working. They don't do anything when I click on them. I can't edit the entry name or comment.

I am on a PC, Google chrome, and... I just tried fith Firefox and it worked with it. Went back to Google chrome and I couldn't change the title anymore again 😊

OK, Chrome was obviously the problem. I downloaded the Ccleaner that Zizounai mentioned and ran that, deleted all cookies and cleared all browsing data and now it works. Thanks for the help guys.

I can't seem to be able to edit my contest image now. This entry I had to edit the water. https:\/\/grepless.com\/c\/photoshop\/photoshop-contest-mixed-media#db1316544509c44a01aea0ceddbc3036 I need it replaced with this one. I did a tad of water work. https:\/\/i.ibb.co\/XX5Q8ft\/The-Big-Catch

What could you do to encourage members to give critiques? I have no idea....a reward of some kind like allowing an extra submission for the best reviewer of the month/week etc?

Could you provide a space where we could go to learn about other members?
